    Hi Nice, you can get this answered by looking at their websites. As for Cory's post above, he sounds like another lazy American who doesn't want to do research, and would rather have someone to tell him who to vote for. My God man, if you were one of those that is about to be drafted, you would certainly care a lot more about candidates that don't have a D or an R after there name. Show some initiative and ADULT responsbility and figure out who the others are and if they have positions that you are in favor of, support them. ONe of the reasons we are so screwed up in this country is people do not want to take the time to investigate any candidate not forced down our throats by the media. Geez people, you get what you deserve. If you don't care, then lets just elect another Bush again, continue driving our SUVs and giving up rights, oh hell, just start a war again, say with Iran?

    Just a bunch of people who would never get elected. There might as well only be two parties, while that may change at some point, I don't see it happening any time soon.
